"Washington Post Warns Of Islamophobic backlash After Somali-Muslim Cop Guns Down Yoga Instructor Who Called 911 For Help"
Its a win/win for the Muslim world every time there is jihad carnage. Jihad terror results in more sharia enforcement.
After every heinous Muslim attack (including Septemenr 11th), the knee-jerk response by media and cultural elites is a nonexistent fear of reprisal and cries of islamophobic tweets that offend Muslim hair-trigger sensibilities. Never does the Muslim world self-reflect. Never do Muslim leaders say, we have a problem, this is evil and we have to be good. We must expunge Islamic texts that exhort to holy war and hate.
No, always, its the same thing. Blame the victims.
Already, hateful posts criticizing Islam and sharia law are filling social media in response to the police shooting.
Tell it to the dead in the cause of Islam.
"After Minneapolis Officer In Police Shooting Is Named, Somali Community Braces For Backlash"
By Katie Mettler, Washington Post
When Mohamed Noor joined the Minneapolis police force and was assigned to patrol the citys southwest corner, the Somali community there the nations largest threw a party for him to celebrate.
He was the first Somali American officer to serve in Minneapoliss fifth precinct and one of fewer than a dozen Somali American officers in the department. His presence on the squad brought Somali activists some pride and reassurance at a time of Islamophobia in America and nationwide racial tension stoked in part by shootings of black people by white police officers.
Now that same Somali community is bracing for a backlash against Noor that has already begun.
On Monday, multiple media outlets named Noor as the officer who fatally shot an unarmed Australian woman in the citys popular Fulton neighborhood over the weekend, an incident that has grabbed global attention and thrust Minneapolis into yet another uproar over police violence.
Officials have not publicly confirmed the officers name.
Tom Plunkett, an attorney who said he to represent Noor, said in a statement that the officer extends his condolences to those mourning 40-year-old Justine Damonds death and takes their loss seriously.
We would like to say more, and will in the future, Plunkett said. At this time, however, there are several investigations ongoing and Officer Noor wants to respect the privacy to the family and asks the same in return during this difficult period.
Although Plunkett did not respond to requests to explicitly confirm that Noor fired the shot that killed Damond, several Somali leaders in Minneapolis said in interviews with The Washington Post that they were aware of the officers involvement.
There is no question that he is the officer, Somali activist Omar Jamal told The Post. We knew this right after the shooting, but we didnt want to release the name.
The Minneapolis Police Federation declined to comment and referred questions to Noors attorney. A spokesman for the Minneapolis Police Department directed inquiries to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, the agency investigating the shooting, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday morning.
Shot her down like a dog. It’s what they do.
Don’t Somalis have on average a 65 IQ? Also, haven’t they been inbreeding for centuries?
WTF are they doing here?
Of course they are worried about backlash since it has happened so many times in the past. Americans are just so evil.
Can't speak about their IQ but a few years ago I had a long conversation with a Kenyan guide we had while visiting the country's game parks.
His basic opinion of Somalis (Somalia borders Kenya) was that they're savages.
It is called political correctness and diversification.
The standards have been pushed lower and lower for decades to meet the above goals.
It’s not a phobia when the fear is rational.
My view is that it is too bad Noor is not queer and we could get a to-fer
I have seen zero reporting on Noor’s backstory. When he came to the US, who/what brought him, if he’s a citizen. Haven’t heard how the local PD could conduct a thorough backround check on a Somali refugee, if Noor is one. What role did Augsburg College play in this?
If Damond’s family is counting on the enemedia to help them find answers, her family better prepare for disappointment. The enemedia won’t go there. Not ours. Not theirs. The family will need some dedicated lawyers, and if they want info, they shouldn’t settle. Discovery is the only way they’ll get info.
The WashPoo is nervous about losing control of the narrative.
And the fakebook BLM and arab “kill whitey” haters are spreading the lie that this is the FIRST time a cop (black, white, or brown) has killed an unarmed white person. Nope, just the first time that it hit the international news cycle.
And if it was a jihadist Solami-muslim enforcing Sharia, well, that’s no good for their talking point.
How many times EVER has an officer shot someone outside a window by aiming his gun in front of his partner (who’s conversing with the deceased) inside the car? BANG!!!
This case stinks and they know it.
Arent more white people than black people killed by police? Yes, but no.

islam is a satanic terrorist cult
More likely known wolf jihadi like Nidal Hassan who was on record (in his file) making violent threats against the kufir and infidel.
This man had 3 “complaints”.
What could possibly justify a backlash? I mean, Muslims go on killing sprees all the time. It’s normal, we’re told.
When a bisexual jihadi killed people he knew in Orlando, President Obama didn’t blame the jihad, he blamed Christian opposition to same sex marriage. But the Orlando shooter didn’t keep it from his wife and she helped him on the attack.
Just another part of living in a big city, according to London’s pro-jihad Islamist mayor.
Wouldn’t it be something if it turns out he’s an illegal?
Oh, yes: hang Noor from the nearest lamp-post and leave his corpse to twist in the wind until it rots off the rope.
